I have been struggling with a problem with outlook 2010 at work. just to sum it up. I updated one of our offices from WinXp with office 2007 to new computers ( intel i5, 4gb ram ) with Win7 and office 2010
this office shares a lot of calendars, and they noticed after the update that the calendar is slow. I CAN'T use cached mode, the "powers that be" won't allow it. but i did find something about cached folder handling, which seems to be a form of cached mode.
you regedit and go to
if the Cached Mode key isn't there, then you add it and in that key add the dword called
and set the binary to 0
That worked for most of the users, however, one of them is still having problems, so i saw things like re-index outlook. and remove the profile and then add a new one
So, on my computer, as a test i removed my profile and then tried to add a new one, but when i try to add a new profile, outlook doesn't automatically setup. so i check manually configure profile, but the option to setup an exchange profile is greyed out.
Any ideas how to make outlook allow me to setup an exchange profile?
Also, in researching this I have seen a lot of people running into an almost identical problem when going from outlook 2007 to 2010. is there a website that goes into the good detail about the difference between 2007 and 2010?
